Practicing Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance Is A Important Part of Human Life

Cr Sreeni Pillamarri, Hornsby Shire Council Councilor (JP NSW), a Justice of the Peace in New South Wales, and a supporter of Falun Dafa, said, “Falun Dafa cultivation is important for people’s mental growth. Its teachings, practice, and enthusiasm should be accepted by everyone in the world. They are so self-disciplined.”

Pillamarri appreciates the universal values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. “We need to be compassionate because we have to live together,” he said, “I hope that everyone will understand compassion and start living in harmony. It’s for everyone. This is the human way of life.”

After watching Falun Dafa practitioners’ exercise demonstration and traditional dance and music performances, he said that the practitioners did a wonderful job.

As the Mid-Autumn Festival is coming, Pillamarri also wishes Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, a happy Mid-Autumn Festival.

A Good Exercise Sending Out its Energy

Maria Menezes came from Melbourne for the day’s exhibition. She enjoyed the demonstrations by Falun Dafa practitioners, and tried to follow along with the practitioners’ demonstration.

“We hardly have time for something like this in our busy lives,” she said. She mentioned that one should take a little time to do things like this, which are good for your body and helpful. It’s a good exercise, and I can feel the energy emanating from those performers.”

“The universal values of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance holds communities together, and it is the cornerstone of any good community,” Maria said. “If everyone is honest with each other, we will live in a better society and enjoy the care exuded by those around us. If you have compassion, you will not hurt anyone. With forbearance, we can enjoy the planet together and enjoy diversity.”

Maria is against the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) practitioners, stressing: “Any form of persecution must stop. Any form of persecution is wrong.”
